Moments with Missy™ initially started as a small Facebook group. It was birthed as a result of Melissa (Missy) giving her pain a voice and from a desire to help other people move beyond their pain, toward healing and hope. Missy would discuss her life experiences and struggles along with what she was doing to positively deal with them. In 2015, the group became an official brand. Moments with Missy™ became a platform for empowerment, hope and healing, designed to provide positive insight on everyday issues. The goal is to help people better cope with life by teaching them how to reconstruct their thinking processes so that they learn to thrive despite difficulties.
Missy combines her Psychology degree, experience servicing the mentally ill, personal history of depression and struggle with suicide with her faith in God to make Moments with Missy™ the life-changing presence that it is.
Through various workshops, paneled discussions, empowerment sessions, individual coaching, her published inspirational memoir, MsMissy Speaks, and her blog, Missy has been able to support and encourage those struggling with depression, sadness, unhealthy relationships and poor life quality. She encourages people to take the necessary steps to be in control of their life and relationship choices by teaching coping skills and helping individuals to recognize their strengths and abilities to cope.
